We’d say you should make this baked Brie dip to bring to holiday parties, but the truth is that you should make it all the time and just eat it for yourself. It’s that good.

It’s a savory combo of cheese and candied pecans that tastes straight-up gourmet but really only takes a few minutes to throw together. Bring this bad boy to any party and you’ll be the hit of the night. Ooorrrr eat it for dinner on your couch, in your pajamas. It’s all about balance, right?
